BC Members Martin Sutton and Berry Cobb are up there with ICANN staffer
The WG Chair Greg Arron (Afilias) is going thru his slides now ? same slides
we saw this morning in GNSO Council. See
Berry and Martin were WG members, and suggested this morning that Greg
worked to avoid Consensus for considering any abuse that occurs with website
When Greg¹s done, we have a golden opportunity to lob softball questions and
supporting comments to Berry and Martin.
Slide 24 is particularly relevant:
> No Consensus on Cybersquatting: NewTLD Rights Protection Mechanisms
> Supported by 7 members of the RAPWG:)
> The RAPWG recommends the initiation of a Policy Development Process by
> requesting an Issues Report to investigate the appropriateness and
> effectiveness of how any Rights Protection Mechanisms that are developed
> elsewhere in the community (e.g. the New gTLD program) can be applied to the
> problem of cybersquatting in the current gTLD space.
> (6 members of the RAPWG:)
> The initiation of such a process is premature; the effectiveness and
> consequences of the Rights Protection Mechanisms proposed for the new TLDs is
> unknown. Discussion of RPMs should continue via the New TLD program.
> Experience with them should be gained before considering their appropriate
> relation (if any) to the existing TLD space.
